A letter of thanks for supporting a night of music to help Japan

A letter thanking those who attending the Japan relief concert at Pynelogs on May 28.

Dear Editor,

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all our valley people who helped make the “Japan Recovery” benefit concert such a successful charity event.

Taking place on Saturday, May 28 at the Pynelogs Culture Center, we collected $3,874.80 through ticket sales, donations and silent auction.

Haru of Fubuki Sushi and I opened a “Disaster Recovery Fund” account at CIBC and the money we collected goes from this account to the Japan Red Cross through the Japanese Consulate in Vancouver .

My deepest appreciation and gratitude goes to the people who bought tickets to listen to the music, the generous donors, hard-working volunteers, and the ‘ready-to-help-anytime’ kind musicians. Without your help, this event would not have been so successful.

Thank you everyone.

Chizuko Purschwitz
